Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is confident that striker Callum Wilson will remain at the club at the end of the January transfer window.

Wilson has been in fine form this season scoring eight goals in the Premier League and was also on target on his England debut against the USA.

His performances have led to reports linking him with a move to Stamford Bridge in the January transfer window, but Howe says it’s a testament to his impressive displays this season that he’s being linked with a club like Chelsea.

“Callum getting linked with other clubs – in some respects, I would almost want that with every player – it means they are performing at the highest level and performing very well,” Howe told Sky Sports.

“From my perspective, Callum’s future is here. He is a massive part of what we are doing and I just want to see him continue to score goals for us.”
